We have some dear friends who give us wonderful smoked salmon every year and this recipe is a great way to use some of it up. I would think some capers would also be a nice addition. FWIW, I omit the dill and exchange the cream cheese for cheddar on 1/4 of it else my daughter wouldn't eat it. Nice that you can alter it pretty easily to individual tastes. My only complaint is that it stuck to my non-stick pan on the bottom. Next time a thin coating of olive oil before adding the ingredients to the pan. Cook time for me was 8 minutes on the stove top and 3 under the broiler.
I doubled the recipe for a small group of friends for brunch this morning. It was absolutely delicious and got rave reviews from a picky eater. To make it even easier, I prepped the egg mixture last night. The salt from the salmon was perfectly balanced against the savory eggs. Also, I used 2% because that's what my toddler drinks, as well as dried dill because that's what was in the house. I would definitely make it again for any occasion!
